By now you've probably seen the video of Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer's confrontation with an Orlando Sentinel writer at Wednesday's practice. According to Ben Volin, another UF beat writer who witnessed the exchange, this is how it transpired:

As practice wound down and players slowly exited the field, Meyer approached a reporter from the Orlando Sentinel in front of about two dozen media members and had a heated exchange over an article the reporter had written about receiver Deonte Thompson.

"You're a bad guy, man. You're a bad guy," Meyer told Sentinel reporter Jeremy Fowler. "If that was my son we'd be going at it right now."
